It's been a heckuva week. I just attended my first ever academic conference. The topic was poetry and sexuality, and I gave a paper about the use of music in erotic poetry and popular song lyrics, if you can believe it. You can read my abstract here.
Highlights included spending time with a lot of interesting people, having guests from Canada, catching readings and speeches by the likes of Sharon Olds and Germaine Greer, chowing down on a huge haggis dinner and dancing myself silly at a ceilidh in Stirling Castle (pictured above).
